Suction hose SH 5 is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from - Works well once primed Once you get the hang of priming the hose it works fine. I followed the advice in a previous review and I thread the hose into a lenth of drain pipe inside the water butt to prevent it from curling up and the end rising above the water level. I found the Karcher supplied fitting to hold the hose in place not good enough and a length of drain pipe is much better. I have also straightened the hose out by pinning both ends down and leaving the hose out for several days and this mostly gets the curls out (I mostly use water butts so I don't need it tightly curled up as for a bucket). Priming works best I find as follows: push the end that will attach to the washer down into the water butt making sure you can see the water level rise in the pipe. If it isn't it is probably because the yellow non-return valve at the other end needs depressing to let the air out. Feed the pipe all the way into the water butt. Underwater thread the (non-return valve) end into your drainpipe. Now take the other end and attach it to the washer. The non-return valve should keep the pipe primed. Now turn the washer on, depress the trigger and allow it to build up pressure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Takes time to upload initially! Initially I thought it would prime automatically after turning my K7 on, engaged the lance trigger for about a minute and BAM! (needs to be explained in/on the boxes contents) - pressure, we're off. shows just how much your machine is using in terms of water flow. Stuck in a water butt I have to feed the pipe through a drainpipe to keep it uncoiled, hope after time it'll straighten out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I had initial problems priming the hose - I lubricated the O-ring seal and screw thread and hand tightened as much as possible - it then primed - during priming, you need to occasionally depress the gun trigger to ensure air passes through - Once working it does a great job.
